Whether it is Wii or WiFi, pool (snooker) or pool (swimming), it's boards rather than bored.

Villa Lilibel

Villa Lilibel

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

If you’re looking for a really central base in Seminyak, there are few villas better located than Villa Lilibel. Not only can you walk to the beach and a host of restaurants from here, but the villa is also well laid out, well staffed and brilliantly sized. Living areas are huge and very sociable, yet you can also find corners for peace and privacy if you so desire. The master bedroom was much larger than the other bedrooms and its bathroom easily the most decadent. We thought the other ensuites were perhaps a little dated and not so well lit.

And much as we might frown upon such unsocial holiday behaviour, this villa is a TV addict’s dream, with TVs in the main living room, media room (plus sets in all of the six bedrooms) - The three bedrooms off the villa’s entrance courtyard were the quietest and the ground floor rooms would be good for sleeping kids and elderly rellies. We liked the different dining options at the villa: the barbecue terrace is a very sociable venue for long balmy evenings spent dining, wining and chatting. The staff proudly told us that Villa Lilibel’s barbecued pork ribs are a bit of an institution. Unfortunately, we didn’t get the chance to try them on this visit!

There’s a reasonably priced menu at Lilibel and a choice of breakfast is included in the rate. The chances are that with so many great restaurants on your doorstep you’ll be eating out much of the time too. The staff were friendly and attentive; there was always someone around when we needed them and they were quick in preparing our meals and drinks. We were impressed with the kitchen too as it was so well-equipped. Keen cooks would be happy here, and all of the provisioning can be left to the staff.

Villa Lulito

Villa Lulito

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

Our stay at Villa Lulito was a delight on so many levels. From the moment we arrived and were greeted by the staff with cold towels and even colder drinks, and then saw just how lovely the villa is with all its many corners to relax, play and spread out, we knew we were in for a great holiday.


We spent a lot of time in and around the pool and were able to follow the arc of the sun all day long simply by moving from sun lounger to daybed. The pool toys also got a lot of use – especially the crocodile – as did the pool lounge and the palm-shaded garden table. During an afternoon tea break up on the first floor balcony, we enjoyed a nosy look out over the roofs and gardens of the other luxury villas in the neighbourhood.


The bedrooms were fantastic: mini sanctuaries where one could retire any time of the day, close the curtains, turn on the air-conditioning and have a beautiful guilt-free nap in a really comfortable bed.


A big shout out goes to the staff, who were a real delight and took care of us beyond expectations. We happily let them ply us with fresh drinks, fantastic gourmet meals (a special thank you to the chef), lots of useful advice about Bali and big friendly smiles all round.


Being in the heart of Seminyak gave us easy access to all the great restaurants and bars that we have been hearing about, and we were able simply to stroll up the street to indulge our passions for all things food and drink, including great coffees and brunches at Sea Circus and Petitenget Café. The burgers at WahWah, right outside the front door, make the best takeaway ever (pricy but so delicious), and as for our delectable dining experiences at Sarong, Teatro and Merah Putih . . . say no more. We especially loved sunset drinks at Ku de Ta. So close! And having the beach less than a five-minute walk away was a dream.

Villa Luwih

Villa Luwih

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

With a double-pool cascade among its many splendours, Villa LuWih is one of the most welcoming and beautiful villas we’ve escaped to in a long while.  Arriving late at night in a slightly dishevelled state, we were quickly restored to a relaxed frame of mind after being met by LuWih’s fresh-faced, smiling team who had prepared our airport transfer service, rooms and snacks exactly as we’d arranged in advance.  The sights and sounds of the night also provide a restorative ambiance, with the villa’s top-floor pool trickling into the big pool below, its soothing lighting and the whooshing symphony of the sea beyond.

After a peaceful sleep in our canopied beds, we awoke and stepped out into a bedazzling scene.  The sparkling green landscape Bali is famous for was in full view all around us, and if we looked further in the distance we could see a serpent’s tail of movement in the sea – a group of surfers riding the waves.

With bedrooms spread evenly over the three levels and a mix of king- and twin-bedded rooms, a group of couples or extended families will find it easy to organise themselves.  Those wanting more seclusion may find the two main-floor bedrooms a bit lacking in privacy, with the doors opening out to the dining and living areas.  But this is a minor quibble, since with their own ensuite bathrooms complete with double bathtubs it’s easy enough to leave the world behind once the doors are slid shut and the curtains drawn.  And they’re both just a quick hop from the big pool.

Now, about these pools … Staying at a hotel with two pools is always impressive, but staying at a private villa with two pools is truly an indulgent delight.  It was a first for us, and we had no excuses for not doing our daily laps.  The shallow section for kids in the larger pool is a thoughtful touch, too.  

With so many staff here, our only concern before arrival was having too many people around!  We were well taken care of, certainly, but never felt overwhelmed or over-serviced during our stay – they seem to have the balance of attention and discretion just right. Being pampered to the hilt is easy to get accustomed to.  LuWih, by the way, means “big” and “luxurious”. Leaving the villa was traumatic.

Villa Mako

Villa Mako

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

Villa Mako has a beautiful energy, probably because so much love has gone into the authentic Dutch Colonial design and antique furnishings. Unlike other villas that are monikered ‘colonial style’, we almost felt the need to don safari suits and complain loudly in Dutch about the damned heat! Conversely, the 21st century has a strong showing in the kitchen, bathrooms, TV room and dining areas. Comfort is by no means excluded in the desire for authenticity. The garden is shaded by a large grove of coconut trees providing tropical poolside relaxation you won’t want to leave. The villa’s rural village location allows you to interact with the friendly local people simply by ducking out the gate at the bottom of the garden.

The seafood dinner, prepared for six of us at short notice by the cook was fantastic, beautifully presented with faultless service. The 36 cushions on the huge antique plantation sofa in the hall had us swimming in softness, while the kitchen just cries out to be cooked in. There are see-through cupboards, acres of bench space and a collection of tableware and glasses for every occasion and tipple. The lay-z boy chair in the media room may cause a few fights to break out, so play nice.

Villa Malaathina

Villa Malaathina

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Umalas-Kerobokan

With its palatial proportions and decadent style, it’s tempting to say that we felt like royalty staying at Malaathina, but the villa is so contemporary that the term seems a little inappropriate and old-fashioned. Perhaps ‘movie stars’ is closer to the mark! We stayed alone and cheerfully lapped up the luxury, but were rather tempted to invite some friends along, because this is really a villa that deserves to be shared. With so much space and such a glamorous setting it simply begs for celebrations and events, and the atmospheric Javanese rock garden looked like an idyllic spot for a wedding ceremony.

I could easily imagine joining a high-end retreat here too – the yoga pavilion was a lovely space, and very well equipped (one of the owners is a yoga teacher – so no surprise there,) and the overall vibe, with the rice-paddy views and myriad terraces and gardens is wonderfully serene. We didn’t have a chance to enjoy the teppanyaki grill, but what a fabulous idea. When we return with a big group of friends that will be top of our list!

Malaiwana - Villa Rodnaya

Malaiwana - Villa Rodnaya

Thailand » Phuket » Nai Thon

With spectacular views over an idyllic white-sand beach and lush tropical parkland, a contemporary, uplifting design, a private pool that reaches out to the sky, a dedicated team of staff, delicious meals prepared by the chef and facilities catering to families, the beautiful Rodnaya is what we’d call a Goldilocks villa: it blends stylish, fun and accessible features – and an enchanting location – to create a holiday home that’s just right for all.   We loved the full range of experiences to enjoy within a day at Rodnaya, from unwinding in five-star comfort and service to exploring the natural beauty of an unspoilt tropical beach just beyond our doorstep.  We had an early-morning swim in the pool, then a decadent breakfast on the terrace.  Later on, we took a stroll along the sand and munched on grilled chicken on a skewer from a beachside food vendor.  Then back up to the villa in time for sunset cocktails and an elaborate dinner of rich Thai curries, spicy fish and stir-fried veggies, all planned the day before with our chef.  Finally to bed, where the master suite offers a soft, sumptuous embrace and the promise of more fabulous sea views, just a curtain-peek away upon waking up tomorrow.

Villa Mana

Villa Mana

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

We absolutely loved Villa Mana. Not only were the views amazing, its openness liberating and the design super-chic – an architectural dream – but it was also very comfortable, with so many places to lie back and relax, even when the villa is full. Sofas and loungers seemed supersized, and were the perfect accompaniments to sleeping and reading or languidly watching the farmers hard at work in their paddy fields.

We enjoyed bathing in the master bathroom with its glass roof, river-stone walls and smooth circular tub that’s big enough for two. We felt the villa was excellently set up for the extended family, large groups or even a couple of families (but do note that using the showers in the ground floor ensuites involves climbing into the tubs, which might not be ideal for some elderly guests).

The twin bedroom and bunk bedroom are both conveniently located opposite the entertainment room, which is a big self-contained space with comfortable sofas that could be used as much as a playroom (there’s a box full of toys plus a pool table) as a home cinema room (plenty of DVDs supplied). Sliding doors open from here and lead onto the enclosed rear garden, where there’s a meandering 2-feet deep pool that can be enjoyed by little paddlers.

The lawn at the bottom of the garden is encircled by paddy fields and felt like the stage of a Shakespearean theatre. The garden is enclosed (parents sigh of relief), and kids will just love it here. Villa Mana's staff aim to please, and they succeed. The chef is excellent and the manager is efficient and knowledgeable. With the kitchen being at the centre of the villa, we were always aware of the staff and felt that total privacy was slightly compromised (at least on the ground floor).

Villa Mandalay

Villa Mandalay

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Seseh-Tanah Lot

We’ve never seen a villa with its own pitch and putt golf range before and thought it was a tremendous addition for family fun or for allowing golfers to iron out glitches before parting with the huge green fees for the 18-hole course New Kuta Golf Club (34km).

We loved the fact that nearly all the rooms in the villa are on one level, making it very social, accessible and appropriate for all ages. And all of the bedrooms (with the exception of the lower studio room - which is slightly smaller - but very private) are very similar and won't be the cause of any group envy.

We lazed away the latter part of the day on comfy couches shaded by the funky bamboo roof of the elevated open-air living and dining deck by the pool. From here we observed the farmers ploughing and flooding the rice terraces in preparation for planting. The staff were diligently on hand with offers of snacks and drink refills to refresh us throughout these exhausting people-watching activities. At sunset we retired for a splendid Indonesian dinner in the main hall.
